After this week’s winter storm, the Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) will resume a normal schedule for activities and events scheduled in school or on school grounds beginning on Saturday, March 7.
The City of Alexandria held a groundbreaking for the Alexandria Police Fallen Officers Memorial on September 27, 2014. Above is a great video that explains why as 18 of Alexandria’s Police officers have lost their lives in service to the City of Alexandria.
On Saturday, March 28, 2015, a dedication of the Memorial in honor of these heroes will be held rain or shine at 6:30 PM. You can RSVP for the ceremony at this link (RESERVATIONS REQUIRED). To donate to the Alexandria Police Foundation, visit this link.

Daylight saving time 2015 will begin on Sunday, March 8 at 2:00 AM. That means it’s time to spring forward with fire safety. Two-thirds of home fire deaths result from fires in homes without a working smoking alarm, according to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA). Having working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half.
Here are some useful fire safety tips.
I was looking for some reference material on the 1979 blizzard in Alexandria, Virginia when I came across this great footage taken near Timber Branch Parkway in Alexandria after Snowmageddon in February 2010.
